Aurora, on her wedding day, enjoyed the Saloon at Californos as a bridal suite where she and the ladies of the wedding party were able to prepare for the big day in comfortable and cozy settings! Here, Craig Sole of Craig Sole Designs coaches Aurora on how to hold her bouquet in the pictures and while walking down the aisle. The Saloon is located beneath Californos ballroom in our historic trolley barn building.
As a party room, the Saloon can accommodate up to 80 guests, but it doubles as a spacious and stylized dressing room or bridal suite for special events and weddings. In order to streamline the big day, hosts opt to get ready on-site.
Californos Saloon features architectural detail, private restroom, plenty of space to lounge and relax, a bar and buffet area for refreshments, while also providing room to get ready for the big day in an easy and conveniently located spot.

Bernie & Molly had an amazing wedding reception here at Californos on Friday January 27, 2017 and the proof is in the pudding! Their photographer, Beau Vaughn Photography, posted the mannequin challenge they filmed, and the bride and groom have passed along the video for Californos to share with any prospective clients!
The beginning of this video is the Bride & Groom getting ready for the big day. It features some very entertaining poses from the wedding party & family throughout! Californos rustic ballroom is featured in the second half of the video, with the bride & groom's cake cutting taking center stage.
We are thrilled to share this video because you can get a great feel for the space as it's being used, full of people celebrating! You can easily catch glimpses of some architectural features like the lofty ceilings, brick walls and hardwood floors. This clip will allow Californos brides to peek into a crystal ball and get a better feel for the venue, well, at least the main ballroom, in advance of their important day. Thanks for sharing, Molly & Bernie!
"We had a fantastic time and can't thank you enough for all that you did to make it a special event for us, our family, and our friends. We are working putting together some reviews for all of our amazing vendors and will pass that along soon too."
